Stuffed Potato Ghosts

These hearty and yummy treats are easier to make than a normal stuffed potato and are a perfect appetizer. The fingerlings are so small and tender that they’ll disappear in a flash! —Taste of Home Test Kitchen

  • Makes
    40 appetizers

Ingredients

  • 2 pounds fingerling potatoes
  • 1 large baking potato
  • 1/3 cup sour cream
  • 2 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 7 thin slices Monterey Jack cheese
  • 1 tablespoon chopped ripe olives
  • 2 green onions, thinly sliced

Directions

  • Bake fingerling potatoes at 350° for 40-45 minutes or until tender; set aside.
  • Meanwhile, pierce baking potato several times with a fork. Microwave for 6-7 minutes or until tender. Cut in half and scoop out pulp; discard shell. Place pulp in a small bowl; mash. Stir in the sour cream, cream cheese, butter, salt and pepper until smooth.
  • Cut each fingerling in half lengthwise. Spoon about 1 tablespoon mashed potato mixture over each potato half. Place on a foil-lined baking sheet.
  • Cut each cheese slice into six rectangles; place one on each stuffed potato. (Save remaining cheese for another use.) Bake at 350° for 10-11 minutes or until cheese is melted and potatoes are heated through. Position olives and green onions on each for eyes and mouths.

    These were SO delicious! They were a LOT of prepwork, especially having to make the faces, but I'd make them for just a regular appetizer any time.
